He's presumably troubled by being out of work, but if his friends truly don't know where he is, he is unlikely to be up to something good for himself.And if, having got a job, he lied and didn't even bother to turn up, something is surely wrong --- maybe he's into drugs, or something like that. This is surely reason to be woried.
The trouble is, that as he is an adult, he is entitled legally to be foolish. Though, while he is living under your roof, it is reasonable to expect him to keep to some basic rules of consideration, such as keeping you informed as to where he's going and when he'll be home, and not lying about going to work
